Is Another UNDER in Store at Oracle Park?

Scott Kingery #4 of the Philadelphia Phillies tags out Stephen Vogt #21 of the San Francisco Giants in the bottom of the fourth inning at Oracle Park on August 09, 2019 in San Francisco, California.

The San Francisco Giants picked up just their third victory in the last 10 games against the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday and will look to notch back-to-back wins in the finale of the four-game series today.

Standout Stats

Sportsbooks opened the Giants as slight -101 home underdogs with a total of 9.

The Giants went 19-6 SU in July but are averaging only 3.6 runs over their last 10 games. Kevin Pillar has been the lone bright spot, as the veteran outfielder is 13-for-36 over his last 12 contests.

The Phillies snapped a three-game losing streak with Friday’s 9-6 win over the Giants but saw their bats go silent yesterday despite posting a 3-1 triumph. Bryce Harper made his second straight appearance in the leadoff spot on Saturday and went hitless in four at-bats.

Jake Arrieta will get the start for the Phils. Arrieta (8-8, 4.41 ERA) saw his winless streak reach six games last Tuesday after yielding two runs on five hits in a no-decision against Arizona. The hurler is 5-3 with a 2.57 ERA in nine career starts vs San Fran and has a 4-2 record with a 3.05 ERA in six outings at Oracle Park.

Conner Menez will counter for the Giants. Menez (0-1, 5.73) made his second career start last Tuesday and surrendered five runs on six hits over six innings in a 5-3 setback to Washington. The 24-year-old went 2-0 with a 4.06 ERA in nine games across 44 1/3 innings for Triple-A Sacramento.

My Best Bet for Phillies-Giants

UNDER 9 runs

Neither of these teams have been able to find put forth consistent offensive efforts night in and night out, and the UNDER is trending as a result. In the past 10 meetings between the NL clubs, the UNDER is 8-2.

The Giants have also gone UNDER in six of their last seven home games. I’m banking on that trend continuing in the series finale and taking the UNDER in this one.
